Ministry of Research, Science and Technology (New Zealand)

Its main responsibilities were to:
- Manage the Government's research, science and technology (RS&T) investment
- Provide policy advice on RS&T issues
- Encourage innovation and commercialisation of scientific and technological knowledge and ideas
- Collaborate with other government organisations where RS&T intersects with their work.
In 2011 the Ministry of Research, Science and Technology (MoRST) was merged with the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology to create the new Ministry of Science and Innovation (MSI), which took over the policy and investment functions of both agencies. MSI became fully operational on 1 February 2011, at which point MoRST and the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology were disestablished. MSI was then subsequently merged with other ministries into the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
